It says something about a company that its internal marketing materials are just as polished and every bit as aspirational as the ones that it looses upon the rest of the world, like this internal App...

I stopped watching at this point.

Does Apple seriously believe it's customers have such empty lives as to be "transformed" by visiting one of their stores?

They (Apple execs) must be brainwashed or extremely arrogant to think like that....

Their messages don't have to be subliminal, their main message is clear enough for me to never want to buy anything apple



Either that or MS has better subliminal messaging tactics

Ah, planning ahead I see- good thinking.

I don't know about you mate but if I was a new Apple employee and was forced to watch that tripe, I'd be having second thoughts about the company I was working for.....

Another piece of corporate propaganda. All spite and malice aside; Apple is honestly a great company as is shown by their market value. Their business model and marketing scheme are a modern phenomenon that has relentlessly and mercilessly swept the world.

In all honesty, their products are no more useful (sometimes less) than alternative products that are also out there (for less money, might I add), but they have gained so much steam with their brand that they can easily charge 20%-40% more for their products than other comparable brands out there and millions of people will by the sh-t out of it regardless. They have crafted an image and a gimmick that has made them so "hip" and given them so much pop-culture notoriety that they are untouchable.

I will say as for myself personally; I hate Apple for preying on an uneducated market. Like any other huge conglomerate, they put on a friendly face and a flashy marketing campaign to draw consumers in, but in the end they are in it to win; not to help people out. They charge exorbitant amounts of money for ho-hum average tech in a shiny white minimalist-styled package pieced together by foreign laborers. I also REALLY hate how they have abused copyright protection laws more than any company I have ever seen or heard of. With their monstrous market cap, I'm sure a lot of their lawsuits have been won with the help of "special interest." Also F--k Apple fanaticism.

Try to avoid them then. Personally, I like their products and have had nothing but excellent customer service. This video is nothing more than the usual corporate brand video, those suffering extreme reactions really need something more serious to worry about.

I hate to say it but the haters tend to show two dimensional concrete thinking. It would be far easier to argue that the haters show much more sheep like qualities than the people actually expressing a preference.

The hate is an easy bandwagon to jump upon. Probably feels very safe, I imagine.

Well George Carlin once quoted: When you are born into this world, you are given a ticket to the freak-show. When you are born in America, you are given a ticket to the freak-show but you get a front row seat, and some of those people have pens and pads.


Now don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on anyone or any country, but I think you made the right decision moving to NZ.

Just sayin.

Awww, aye? well kia ora bro, and here I was thinking the entire time you were a born and bred pom (no offense).

But yeah that's pretty bad, it's like I always say: Don't let advertising get the better of you, or you might one day find yourself fighting over something without fully understanding why.


But that was pretty funny though.
